LADY'S HAT
Designed by Stephen Jones (British)
Velour and satin with feathers
1982

This dazzling hat appeared on the cover of Tatler magazine. Sculpted in spiralling, luminous fabrics and delicate featherwork, it perches gracefully on the head, like the plumage of an exotic bird.

A graduate of St Martin's School of Art, Stephen Jones is one of the most outrageous and daring of Britain's young milliners. His clientele now ranges from the Princess of Wales to Grace Jones and he also creates hats for several leading designers, including Benny Ong, Zandra Rhodes, Steven Linard, Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler.
